SA Councils for the Swings, Rides & Slides

Got plans for the weekend?  What about taking the kids (or grand-kids) to the playground?

Kicking a ball around at the park and throwing a few snags on the public BBQ? Or grabbing your bathers for a dip in the local pool?

South Australian councils maintain thousands of parks and playgrounds across the State for the enjoyment of local residents. Councils also operate recreation and community centres, hosting everything from indoor cricket to roller-skating.

What about a spot of fishing? You could throw a line in from one of the dozens of jetties maintained by SA’s beachside councils. Or cool off at a council operated swimming pool.
South Australian councils invest millions of dollars each year in providing services and facilities to make everyday life in your community a little better.

For more information about the facilities in your local area, see the LGA website here and follow them on Facebook here.

Urban Beach

Slide on your shades, grab the sunscreen and get some sand between your toes at Urban Beach.

There’s plenty to do for all ages with yoga and Pilates classes but if relaxing isn’t your thing get sweaty with beach volleyball, netball, badminton and Frisbee golf; or try your hand at a game of totem tennis, Bocce or even Finska! Don’t let others beach you to it, see you at Urban Beach this summer.
